Great that you got the fuel leak fixed, hope I have also done so on mine (still need to fill more petrol in to know).
Nice touch with the key and remote

Sure, the bulb you need is a miniature bulb, 1,5 V, 0,06 A, 0,09 W and you can get it for example here on German eBay: http://www.ebay.de/itm/Miniaturlampe-mi ... ki2vvaiptAlouis_hsy wrote:i would like to change the bulb for my main key as well, could you please tell where did you find the correct bulb? is there a code number that i can refer to?
No, unfortunately I'm not that lucky. I only have the following: M8B/GB, M1C/IN, M3B/IN, M6B/GB, M7A/IN, M8A/GB, M10A/GB, M12B/GB, M14A/GB, M2A/IN, M21A/GB, M24A/GB, M19A/GB, M12A/GB, M1B/IN, M23A/GB, M25A/GB, M2B/IN, M29A/GB, M11B/GB, M28A/GB, M25B/GB, M50A/GB, M21B/GB, M33A/GB. I'll probably have some reprogrammed though, I know user alfisty here can do it, I'm just wondering if anyone has source with English language?Alfan wrote:Does the suitcase contain the Q4 specific modules? MA10A for Motronic, MA12A for 4WD, M30A for ABS (also for 33 Q4).
Yes, burning points are not working ABS (spare from Alfist laying in a box), serpentine belt pulley bearings, Viscomatic hydraulic pressure pipes (have a leak, will make new rubber hoses). Nice to have things on my list are removing dents after hale damage 2 years ago, refresh underbody coating, refurbish side mirrors. To do in the future will be slight (at the moment) leaks developing from the oil pan and the rear diff (only wet, no dripping), and some other minor points.Alfan wrote:Any other work left on the car?
I'm happy you've noticed my wiring job. I usually put some attention to details. In fact, if you look closely, you'll notice that I've replaced most of the visible bolts and fasteners with new ones (including the ones holding the false firewall). Regarding the wires, I have actually removed the old wrap, and most of the insulation of the wires was gone, meaning the copper wires of the loom were shorting between the pairs... Probably not helping with your erratic idle. I used self welding tape from Mannol for isolation (wrapped each wire individually) and to patch up all sensitive areas, also connectors. The finishing tape is an automotive electrical tape from Tesa. At some point we are all due for wiring harness renovation (I honestly can't wait to have it redone at some point), but for now I'm happy with what I did, the quality is very good. Yes, I am very patient.MikeCZ wrote:What tape did you use for electric harnesses? I would also like to tide it up but I don't want to use something which will "erode" glue from engine heat that it won't be possible to remove it.
And also, what paint? It seems like with texture, not completely smooth - which is interesting and I kind of like it
Not at all, highly informative and interesting to read!AlfaWhiz wrote:Sorry for the essay.
Of course not, I'm glad you like it. I'm very happy with the result, during the last technical inspection once the guy saw the engine, he saw no need to investigate the car further.MikeCZ wrote:Anyway I hope you won't mind if I would "copy" your color+finish scheme
Thanks!M164 wrote:Superb reading and great to see another considerate owner wanting to save another great Classic Alfa 164. The photos look fantastic, especially the dealer ones. The shape of the 164 truly is timeless. Beautiful from all angles. Well done !
I used self welding tape for isolation, wrapped each wire individually, also to patch up all sensitive areas and connectors, something like Mannol 9917. The finishing tape is an automotive harness / electrical / cloth tape, like Tesa 51608 or similar with different width.M164 wrote:Superb reading and great to see another considerate owner wanting to save another great Classic Alfa 164.
